the quote with john mccain and you know, mitch mcconnell back -- literally -- you know, when it is something obama wants they're against it. >> oh, yeah. if for whatever odd reason, bush nominated hagel to be secretary of defense whatever, he would have gotten every republican vote. i'm assured of that. but obama nominates him and you know, here we have the republican party which is going to use up its few remaining resources to oppose -- >> stephanie: a republican -- >> republican vietnam vet from nebraska to be secretary of defense. we're in bizarro world at this point. >> stephanie: here's john mccain in 2006, i would be honored to have chuck with me in any capacity. he would make a great secretary of state. wow. it is incredible. >> it is amazing. the other thing that kind of bothers me is right so the press has been knocking obama you know. why hasn't he changed the tone of washington. why hasn't he single-handedly ended partisan gridlock? you know, now he goes out of his way to make what i think is probably the most high-profile, across the aisle nominee in modern american history mayb
the stopped clock that is center john mccain. he tweeted a link saying if we end the war in afghanistan the whole thing will have been a waste. other than him, if you heard a chest bumping outcry? i have not heard that outcry. the balloon is still floating. president obama is meeting with president karzai tomorrow. but it has also revealed where american politics are. in year 12 of this war. nobody is outraged by the prospect of it being all the way over. nobody is shooting this balloon down. now it is time for "the last word with lawrence odonnell". >> the nra met its worst nightmare today and his name is joe biden. >> the nra is a friend of freedom. >> i want to thank the national rifle association. >> they do a terrific job. >> we have the craziest people. >> too much weaponry in all the wrong hands. >> but there are also thing that is we know. >> he has a lot of friends on the hill. >> the vice president's task force powwow. >> there is no room. >> not to give an inch of ground. >> there is no room for compromise. >> we have another school shooting in taft, california at the same mo

senator john mccain and some in the oscar academy are taking issue with the film's depiction of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden. >> in op-ed, david clenen urged people not to vote for the film. he writes this, i cannot vote for a film that makes heroes of americans who commit the crime of torture. the sony co-chairman says "zero dark thirty" does not advocate torture. to not include that part of history would have been irresponsible and inaccurate. >> and on the subject of film, one of hollywood's most iconic movie theaters getting a new name. grauman's chinese theater will now be called tcl theater. money is expected to go towards needed renovations, cultural landmark first opened in the summer of 1927. >>> the oscars are a little more than a month away, but we've got another big show coming up this weekend. the golden globes, hollywood's second biggest night of the year. earlier i spoke with nichelle turner about the show and who's up for awards. >> coming off this week announcement of the oscar nominations, everyone will be looking at how "lincoln" is going to fair. the steve
feinstein of california and backed by john mccain of arizona wants to know if there was inappropriate access to classified information. the committee also wants to know if cia personnel are responsible for the film's portrayal of torture. it's not every day a film sparks a senate investigation. joining me tonight to talk about it all is david edelstein, chief film critic for the "new york" magazine. great to have you with us. >> thank you so much, ed. >> i want to talk about lincoln first because i went to it twice. because i love history. but i knew i had missed a lot. every word, every sentence is so meaningful. i was so impacted by the second time i saw it. does controversy affect whether films are recognized politically -- political controversy, social change -- >> absolutely. it's more satisfying to talk about the oscars in terms of their politics and the politics of the voters than it is to talk about them artistically because often it's not a measure of artistry. sometimes it is. it's a measure of what will represent the academy best, noblest, if you will. and lincoln really hit the s
are supportive of israel. >> well, john mccain a fellow vietnam war vet, he released a statement after today's announcement saying, quote, chuck hagel served our nation with honor in vietnam, and i congratulate him on this nomination. i have serious concerns about the positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years. you listen to some of this vitriol, it's like he's charles lindberg or something. i have been to israel so many times. you have doves in the community over there, you have moderates, people like perez who is almost godly in his love for peace. you got all kinds of people over there with different views. isn't the american secretary of defense allowed to have a particular view that's in the middle or slightly to the left or does it have to be bibi netanyahu to have -- >> if you go to tel aviv and look at the debate -- >> it's wide open. >> wide open. here it's much more -- >> if you're not for bibi, you're not considered pro-israel. >> chuck hagel is not a pacifist. number two, he's a war is last resort rather than war is first res
on playing senator john mccain. >>> and a movie that was nominated for several golden globes, the subject of today's "gut check." jessica chastain won the award and in running for best picture at the oscars. the film is about, of course, the killing of osama bin laden and tracking him down and graphically depicts torture. this weekend, martin sheen and ed asner encouraged peers to vote against it as best picture saying it glorifies torture and they say it's a vote of conscience. sony pictures strongly refuted that. so if you've seen the movie and a lot of you had, many of you read about it, what does your gut tell you on this? do you agree with the actors saying it glorifies torture and should be boycotted from the oscars? go to facebook.com/newsnation to cast that vote. i'm tamron hall.

about john mccain ten years ago when he was running against george bush. chuck hagel has some of the problems that he does. keep in mind, he is as -- we said in intro, he is obama's choice, and, of course, republicans are going to object to him. there's a certain amount of partisan ranker. >> that's a problem, right? once it's completely obvious that they would try to block him because he is obama's choice, but this is not sfw that is traditionally done. we have a statistic somewhere here. do you know how many cabinet nominees have been rejected since 1789? 2%. >> wow. >> the understanding is when a president wants someone to be in his cabinet, you let the president have that person in his cabinet, but michael eric dyson, are we witnessing the dawn of a new era where everything the man wants to do is -- >> i teach hagel, marx, and freud, they're just great people. the reality is that chuck hagel is an independent-minded person. the republicans want your cake and eat it too. you want somebody who is independent and saying, look, i disagree. gently but forcefully. here's a man w

to the climate challenge for many years was senator john mccain. the nominee of the republican party was the premiere architect of responding to climate change. how far things have changed in the past four years where we ended up in the primaries of -- the republican primaries of 2012 and we found that all of them, with the one exception of jon huntsman, were calling into question the basic reality of the problem itself. were basically saying in some cases saying that it was a hoax, okay. this is a remarkable turn for the party itself. and you know -- and what we're seeing of course right now is that in the aftermath of the loss of 2012 -- republicans are beginning to look inward and they're trying to say, "where have we gone wrong? where are our new opportunities to engage the public?" immigration is one of those issues that they're beginning to say, "maybe it's time to change our position." climate change could be another of those. because it's one of the ways that they can appeal back to the middle. our own work, we found that independents are much more like democrats on their bel
